Tondela vs Portimonense Prediction & Match Preview

Tondela vs Portimonense
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Monday, 8th April 2019
Kick-off at 20.15 UK/ 21.15 CET
Venue: Estádio João Cardoso (Tondela).

Tondela is stuck in the relegation zone, and cannot for the life of them, post points on the board consistently. They have some favorable set of games coming up though, starting from this Monday. The team is at home and is taking on Portimonense, who are going through a rough patch as well.

One thing that Tondela has to look forward to is the fact that the teams above them, the teams that they are trying to overtake, are doing not so good currently.

Portimonense is in the mid-table, but they have a buffer of just seven points from the exit line. And with teams below shifting into panic mode, it would not suit them well to be complacent.

Tondela vs Portimonense Head-to-head (h2h)

  • It’s been seven years since an away team recorded a win.
  • Six of the last eight fixtures saw the teams at home scoring two or more goals.
  • The reverse fixture of this game saw an inspiring performance by Tondela, who was on the road, with a 3-2 scoreline. The hosts took the win.
  • Only once has Tondela failed to record at least two goals in front of their home crowd.

Tondela vs Portimonense Prediction

H2h games generally show a trend of home teams having the upper hand. In fact, the last time a team on the road took the three points was back in 2012. Moreover, Tondela recorded two or more goals in every h2h fixture at home, bar one. And importantly, Tondela made Portimonense sweat for the three points in the reverse fixture of this game, despite being on the road.

With Tondela desperate to get out of the relegation zone, expect them to cash in on the home advantage. There’s a negligible chance for them to lose at home this Monday.

One thing to be noted though is that Portimonense is no pushover. They have scored two or more goals in the last four h2h ties in a row and has failed to score only once against this team. Also, in spite of their failure to procure good results, they have not disappointed in regards to goals. Nine of their last eleven matches saw them finding the back of the net. Expect either team to take part in the goal-scoring duty.
